Rebel! MTV Announces Nominees for 2007 VMAs...

So as you all should probably know by now, I'm not a huge fan of MTV or the garbage they promote. Their annual Video Music Awards are usually a joke, this year evidenced by the fact that both Justin Timberlake and Beyonce are nominated seven times...each! Come on! Is MTV even trying anymore? You know you're not dipping too far down in the well when a single artist gets nominated for seven awards.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why I started the Anti-Video Awards Awards. So far, there hasn't been a lot of excitement over on the voting page but hopefully you'll be energized (and pissed off) when you read the following list of Nominations for the 2007 VMAs.

Best Group:
Fall Out Boy
Gym Class Heroes
Linkin Park
Maroon 5
The White Stripes

Best New Artist:
Lily Allen
Gym Class Heroes
Peter, Bjorn and John (A desperate attempt at credibility)

Rihanna f/ Jay Z - "Umbrella"

Kanye West - "Stronger"

Have you stopped caring yet? I mean, I stopped caring when I read "Gym Class Heroes." When I saw "Daughtry" I started searching my house for rope and by the time I got to Mims my noose was ready to go. Do the world a favor and try not to support this crap.

Instead, support me and the Anti-Video Awards Awards! All the nominations can be read here and YOU get to decide who wins what! You have until August 31st to vote! What are you waiting for?

Hehe, it really gives you perspective on how dumb MTV wants us to be.
